Just like a Popsicle Firecracker, non?
Did you know that the first popsicle was made in San Francisco by 11-year-old on a freezing night in 1905?
Frank W. Epperson invented the Popsicle on an extraordinarily cold night in San Francisco
No sir, did not know that. Thanks Wiki!
OMG, Free Ben & Jerry’s is Here Through July! #OMGFreeBenJerry Will Send the Ice Cream Truck to You!Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011
OMG, the 2011 Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Truck West Coast Tour is here in the bay area through the end of July, 2011!
Just check the sked right here to see where they’ll turn up next.
And best of all, if you Tweet them or Poke them, maybe they’ll show up at your office or whatever with some tasty free B&J.
Check it – these “happy gals” from Edelman Digital San Francisco (and some more over here at the San Francisco Bay Guardian) have already beaten you to the punch:
(In Soviet Russia, [You know, I'm going to have to issue a recall on my lame Yakov Smirnoff reference. What I want to say is something like, "In Soviet Russia, ice cream eats YOU." But that doesn't make sense. You know, I just haven't heard enough of his material. Apologies.])
SFO’s New Terminal Two Will Be “Sustainable?” Sign Up Now For the T2 Kick-Off on April 9th – Party With 11 Thin White PeopleMonday, March 28th, 2011
Here are the bus ads around town these days.

Now, is this something to get excited about?
Well, as always, You Make The Call. Hey, why not show up for the FREE SFO T2 Community Open House on Saturday, April 9th, 2011 and decide for yourself.
But hurry, they’re running out of the tickets that you all will need to get in. Check it:
(As promised, there are 11 thin White People on the invite page. Count them for yourself, why not? Where’s Waldo ‘n stuff.)
As you might have expected, Inside Scoop’s Paolo Lucchesi is all over the food sitch at our new T2. All’s I can say is that it all should be pretty pricey, but, prove me wrong, SFO, prove me wrong.
Now, leaving aside the big picture of labeling anything to do with jet travel sustainable,* I’m a little baffled as to how a “cage-free” egg is a “sustainable” egg, but oh well.
All the deets:
- organic, local products
- organic or natural meats
- rBST-free dairy products
- cage-free antibiotic eggs
- sustainable seafood
- fairly traded organic coffee
- non-modified agricultural products
- no artificial color, flavor or additives
- non-hydrogenated oils
- biodegradable to-go containers and utensils
- compostable bio-resin or paper bottles for water
- low- or no-phosphate detergents.
As with other tenants, SFO’s concession tenants are encouraged to use green building materials for their facilities and will be required to recycle and compost.”
I don’t know, I’m used to hearing all this overblown stuff from SFO. So it’s like yes, SFO was ready for the long-delayed Airbus A380 superjumbo, but so what. And yes, Lufthansa will soon be using an A380 from Frankfurt daily, but it burns more fuel than the Boeing 747 it’s replacing, right? Well, the Mayor’s Office and SFO both reported that one wrong. Oh and then QANTAS was supposed to start flying A380s in and out of Millbrae, but, instead, they’re going to bug out of NorCal entirely due to a little corporate welfare (like 3 mil., something like that) from Texas, so maybe the Mayor’s Office and SFO were, once again, wrong/insanely optimistic about that as well?
Remembering when the T2 construction site was a vast ocean of free parking. Good times.
(Man, are they still flying three-decade-out-of-production DC9′s out of SFO? Or that’s a baby McDonnell Douglas MD-80 in the upper left? Can’t tell. No matter, flying dinosaurs they are regardless.)
So, we had a Terminal 2, then we shut it down, and now we’re opening it again. O.K.
Make that super-meh.
*Cheap international air travel using relatively cheap dino-juice is “sustainable?” Really? And instead of bringing food to the people, ’cause that’s unsustainable ‘n stuff, we’re bringing people to the food?
All the deets here and after the jump.
SFO: Ask about our “recomposure zone!”**
**Srsly. (Call us when the shuttle lands, SFO.)

“Expectations: a long line of grumpy people and a halfway decent burger. Reality: A fast moving line with friendly people, friendly staff and a fun event with a DJ. 3 choices, ahi, cheeseburger, kimchee pulled pork. All came with fries and a drink (soda, champagne, beer). I was so surprised that they did the whole meal not just the free burger! The burger was cooked perfectly medium, fries were perfect and beer was good.”
Throw in 1000 free red shirts and it turned out to be quite the shindig. We’re talking crunk crunk, junk junk, drunk drunk.
Ah, Cristal, my T-shirt, and a couple of free ahi burgers - why not?

Verily, it was a “dancin’ on the tables kinda night.”
Bon Chance, Gott’s Roadside!
But there’s a catch - two, actually.
1. You need to commit to volunteering your labor* at a San Francisco Department of Recreation and Park facility; und
2. It’s a buy-one-get-one-free (BOGOF) deal, except for Mitchell’s – they’re giving away 200 cones before BOGOF kicks in.
*I don’t know, maybe the RPD people will be happy if you just commit to thinking about volunteering at RPD sometime in the hazy future.
